A Brief Chapter 7 Pro and Con

Pro: Chapter 7 Bankruptcy does not take long. How long does a bankruptcy take? Under Chapter 7, the entire process from filing to receiving a discharge of debts is usually around 6 months. 

Con: If you cannot exempt an asset, you will likely lose it. Do you usually lose property in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy? No, not usually. But there is a possibility if you cannot exempt the asset that you will lose it.  The way to keep property in bankruptcy is either exempting it in a 7, or if you cannot, then filing a Chapter 13. If you can pay the assets value in the Chapter 13 payment plan, you can normally keep it.
